Is there an option in about:config that makes the url bar not show my top sites? I know that disabling top sites or changing browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.feeds.topsites to false will make the url bar act like in the past, but i don't want to disable my top sites. When i open a new tab, i want the page to show my custom top sites and the url bar show suggestions based on my history.

In 74.0.1, when I clicked into the address bar, the previous contents were completely selected by a black background and I could type a new URL or search. In 75.0, I am not able to click into the address bar. I am shown a dropdown list of suggestions but cannot edit or type over the previous address. How can I restore the 74.0.1 behavior?

The window at the top of my Firefox page used to have the following on the right hand side of the box (in left to right order): "show history" (which, when hovered over displayed a downward facing arrow); "toggle reader view"; "page actions"; "save to pocket"; and " bookmark this page". The "show history" button has disappeared. Does anyone know how to it back? I've attached a screenshot showing from left to right icons for "toggle reader view" "page actions" "save to pocket" and "bookmark this page." Thanks.

Even though I have deselected "Show search suggestions in address bar results" in my preferences, I can't get rid of it.

When I start typing in the address bar it has the whole drop down box with a bunch of search engines I don't want or use - YouTube, Facebook, Wikipedia, Reddit and Twitter.

It wasn't there before, and it's really annoying.

Looks ugly as hell. Or at least make it stop autofocusing on a new tab. How am I supposed to use this browser now when I'm overwhelmed with the feeling of disgust each time I open a new tab? When will web designers learn that mobile-first doesn't mean compromizing desktop experience. Jesus Christ.
